Scientific Studies Show That Most Pedophiles are Left-Handed Males
‘If we find that paedophilia has a biological basis, with a very early, even prenatal onset, this will influence and hopefully improve methods of treatment for this group.’
Can scientists spot a pedophile? Study claims they are more likely to have physical deformities and be left-handed
- It also found pedophiles were more likely to have non-detached earlobes
- Other physical irregularities include mishappen ears and being short
- These can develop due to baby’s exposure to alcohol or drugs in the womb
- Scientists suggest pedophiles can be identified before they commit a crime

Pedophiles are more likely to be left-handed, have non-detached earlobes and misshapen ears.
This is according to a controversial study that argues pedophilia is biological problem that creates clear differences in appearance.
Scientists say these physical differences can be used to identify pedophiles before they commit a crime, potentially keeping children out of harm’s way.
Pedophiles are more likely to be left-handed and have earlobes that aren’t detached to their heads. This is according to a study that argues pedophilia is biological problem, with physical deformities to match.
The latest study found that paedophiles have more physical flaws known as Minor Physical Anomalies (MPAs).
MPAs can include low-set ears, a furrowed tongue, a curved fifth finger, a third toe longer than the second toe and an excessive gap between first and second toe.
The researchers pedophiles were more likely to be left-handed, have non-detached earlobes and a high palate.
Previous research has found paedophiles tend to be between 10 and 15 IQ points lower than average. They are also typically 2.3cm shorter in height than a typical male.
